Non synthetic. Well run whatever you want but I wouldn't waste the money on the expensive stuff.

I went to Walmart tonight to pick up fluid and they had synthetic 75w-90 GL-5, but only 2 quarts. I picked up those and a qaurt of non-synthetic 85w-140 GL-5. Will the 85-140 be alright to use?

From the TJ side of the house. It appears that opinions vary. You may have to leave it as you have it and see what happens--make sure it's not blowing lube out your vent line or out the ends of your axle past the seals.

There isn't really a sequence. Most posts mentioning specific bolts recommend leaving one of the top bolts turned in just a few threads so that when you pop the cover, it doesn't fall off into your drain bucket. Just do them all up finger tight so to speak, then tighten in a criss-cross fashion rather than like a clock. You'll be good.

Just had to chime in with a thank-you.

Simple job which you might laugh at someone being intimidated by, but with a simple write up I had no trouble.

Decided to get fancy and sand and paint the cover while it was off, so it's taking a bit longer.

Great pictures!

Thx
